The Starfish Snake Plant is slightly unusual because unlike most snake plants that grow upright, this cultivar produces outward-growing, thick cylindrical leaves that look rather like a starfish. This compact houseplant is easy to care for and being a succulent, tends to thrive with a bit of neglect. A great air-purifying plant, Starfish Snake Plant is a great addition to any home or office environment. 

Best Locations For Growing Starfish Snake Plant

Being relatively small, the Starfish Snake Plant is perfect for growing on a desk or shelf. It should be noted though that this plant is classified as toxic and should be kept away from children and animals. 

Starfish Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements

The Starfish Snake Plant can cope with most light levels. However, to get the best from this unusual succulent, bright indirect light is recommended.

Starfish Snake Plant Care

Requiring a warm environment of 60 °F to 80 °F and average indoor humidity levels, this plant will tolerate most homes or offices without extra care. However, do not let the temperature fall below 55 °F as the plant may not recover. The Starfish Snake Plant rarely needs pruning except to remove any yellowing leaves that occur and can be removed at soil level.

Watering Starfish Snake Plant

Being a succulent, the Starfish Snake Plant stores moisture in its foliage and hates to be overwatered. Hence, watering is only advisable when the top inch or two of soil has dried out. To avoid root rot, any excess water must be allowed to drain away before placing the plant back in its decorative pot. On average, a fortnightly watering is enough during the summer months and can be reduced to every month during the winter. 

Feeding Starfish Snake Plant

The Starfish Snake Plant is not a hungry plant and feeding is not strictly required. However, this plant can benefit from being fed during the growing season; use a general fertilizer specified for houseplants at half its usual strength.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
